The M&A Advisor announced BRG as winner of the Healthcare/Life Sciences Deal of the Year (Under $500 million) in its 13th Annual Turnaround Awards. BRG Managing Directors Haywood Miller and Peter Chadwick led a team in the sale of Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc.

“Since 2002, we have been honoring the leading turnaround transactions, companies and dealmakers. BRG was chosen from over 275 participating companies to receive the award. It gives us a great pleasure to recognize BRG and bestow upon it our highest honor for distressed investing and reorganization firms and professionals,” said Roger Aguinaldo, founder of The M&A Advisor. “BRG represents the best of the distressed investing and reorganization industry in 2018 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates.”

“The Orexigen case was another opportunity for us to take advantage of the wealth of healthcare talent at BRG. BRG’s Healthcare Analytics and Private Equity Finance Advisory teams allowed us to broaden the potential pool of acquirers, ultimately resulting in a robust sale process,” said Chadwick.
